CD PROJEKT RED has released a new trailer for the hotly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077, and it features a doozy of a character reveal. You can see the trailer below for the game, which is set to release on April 16th, 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The trailer reveals one of the key characters in the game, Johnny Silverhand, who is played by Keanu Reeves. CD PROJEKT RED announced that Reeves will be voicing the character in full and will also do full-body motion capture. More information will be revealed at E3.

Cyberpunk 2077 is based on the legendary tabletop RPG Cyberpunk 2020 by Mike Pondsmith and R. Talsorian Games. It’s set in a world that has suffered a socio-economic collapse, with the government turning to megacorporations in order to exist. These corporations are free to act as they will, with the new open-world video game set in the game’s chief setting of Night City. The game follows the story of V, a hired gun on the rise in a world of cyberenhanced street warriors, tech-savvy netrunners and corporate life-hackers. Featuring CD PROJEKT RED’s hallmark concept of choices and consequences, players will face difficult decisions that ripple through the entire game.
